Voice Recognition Software

Voice Recognition Software exists, but Bit-by-Bit’s responses imply a level of intelligence in the machine. Artificial Intelligence has been the goal of the computing industry since 1937, when Alan Turing, a British Scientist, published a paper on the mathematical theory of computing. It contained a description of a theoretical device that came to be known as the Turing Machine, which demonstrated mathematical reasoning.

During World War II, Turing worked at Bletchley Park, the research centre that cracked the German code machine, Enigma. The Park’s Colossus, the first electronic programmable computer, was switched on at Bletchley in December 1943, when it was used to crack the German Lorenz (SZ42) Cipher used by Enigma. Although no machine has yet passed the Turing Test of ‘Intelligence’, if the software on board Bit-by-Bit was real, it would do so – writing fiction has its advantages.

And Ian Fleming worked at Bletchley Park on the Enigma project, so he did know something about espionage when he wrote his first James Bond novel.
